Gluten Free Find: Beef Jerky

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I have done a food related post on my blog. As many of you may know, I have been on a "gluten free" diet (I like to call it lifestyle) for the past few years. Many people tell me that they do not know how I resist the regular foods that I was once accustomed to eating. I simply tell people that after two trips in one week to the hospital, I do not have a choice. Now that I am fully aware that foods I was eating daily was violently affecting my digestive system, I make the conscious effort everyday to save myself the pain. Now that we have gotten the seriousness out of the way, I want to introduce you to my new segment on my blog: Gluten Free Finds. I am always trying new food products/brands and am constantly and pleasantly surprised to find so many gluten free substitutes for the foods I used to eat. I haven't had beef jerky in AGES, and I thought I would not find gluten free beef jerky anytime soon. To my surprise, I found some at my local Fresh and Easy store! Now, I LOVE Fresh and Easy. They have so many gluten free foods!!
These are little packs of beef jerky, by the brand Krave. They are not only gluten free, but they are also all natural and do not contain nitrites or artificial ingredients. I believe each pack was $2.99.
This is the Sweet Chipotle flavor. You can really taste the chipotle flavor, and it also have a smokey/sweet taste. It's delicious!!
The Grilled Sweet Teriyaki is my favorite favorite!! It tastes just like how it's described, and it really reminds me of the traditional beef jerky.

There were many over flavors, so I will definitely be getting some more. What I really like about this brand is that it actually tastes much more fresh than traditional beef jerky. The packs are also small, yet contain a good amount of pieces, so you won't feel too guilty if you consumed the whole bag (I spaced mine out over a few times). Overall, I would absolutely recommend anyone on the GF diet to check these babies out if you are craving beef jerky! Try these, and I doubt you will continue to feel deprived of a delicious snack you once used to enjoy. Even if you weren't on a gluten free diet/lifestyle, these would still be a healthier alternative to the traditional beef jerky brands. Let me know if you guys have tried these out!!

Thank you so much for the support!! 'Til next time beef jerky lover, MUAH!
